Outside Again In The 2021 Nissan Kicks
I’m biased about the Nissan Kicks, there’s just no getting around that fact.
I actually fell in love with this subcompact SUV offering from Nissan because I test drove it for the first time in Brazil during the 2016 Olympics. And upon my return to the U.S. for nearly a year and a half, I kept asking executives from Nissan: “When is the Kicks going to debut in the U.S.”
So when this car kicked off in America in 2018 replacing the Nissan Juke, I was elated that the vehicle that I had developed a love affair with in South America was joining me in the U.S.
Adding to my appreciation was a big launch event for the Nissan Kicks in San Diego in the spring of 2018. Being able to drive this cool, hip whip down through the beach just added to this vehicle’s trendy, youthful appeal.
So I got to spend some additional time in a 2021 Nissan Kicks after almost two years not testing vehicles due to the pandemic. It was cool getting back into the swing of the automotive grove with this cool, hip vehicle.
The appeal of the Nissan Kicks is its personality. This car has charisma and charm that sells the practical nature of its offering.
Its two-tone design model is catchy to the eye and its overall design makes it stand out amongst its competitors
It has an efficient drive and great fuel economy—31 city miles per gallon and 36 highway miles per gallon. What is lacks in speed and power, it makes up with plenty of character.
Despite its small size, you got more than adequate cargo space. This vehicle also exceptionally efficient powertrain.
As far as safety is concerned, you get standard automated emergency braking; standard forward-collision warning and available blind-spot monitoring.
It’s pretty simple, the Nissan Kicks is a lifestyle vehicle. If you feel it works for yours, you’ll find it to be an ideal automotive option.
Spin Control: With base models starting at $19,600 and ranging up to about $22,000; you’re getting a great car for a bargain.
